My cell # 210 209 3597.. call anytime

Price $4499 (All parts sold “at cost”)
Just the cost of "new parts" that I use in my rebuilds run +/- $2700
You must have a "rebuildable" 2.0L LongBlock Core to trade-in..
Otherwise you will pay a $595 core charge
12 month – 12000 mile “conditional” warranty

New AMC Cylinder Heads (Oval or Square Port)
New 96mm Pistons and Cylinders..
New SCAT Camshaft and Lifters
CB Performance Oil Pump
228mm Resurfaced Flywheel
Original VW standard crankshaft (STD or reground .010”)
Rebuilt Connecting Rods

I personally “match machine” the Engine Block and Cylinder Heads to Perfection
On my Vertical Mill.. Also match machine the heads for approx 8/1 compression
I also alignbore the case, and replace all 12 oil galley plugs..
The engine block is cleaned at the airport machine shop in San Antonio
In special chemicals..

Also I have my crankshafts and flywheels balanced together as one rotating assembly
and the Connecting Rods are also balanced..

End Play set perfectly..
All new seals and bearings obviously..

THE CRATE: Building the crate takes $80 in materials + $70 labor
So the crate is $150 total..
FREIGHT COST: I take the crate to San Antonio shipping terminal
Usually around $220-290.oo to your door.. (shipping prices vary)

If you need some advice or an opinion- feel free to call
Even if we dont do business- Im glad to help

YOUR OLD ENGINE: What do I expect ??
To get your core charge refunded I must end up with a
"reusable-refurbishable" Engine case, a Crankshaft that will turn to 10/10,
connecting rods and all the engine hardware..
I do not need the old cylinder heads and pistons and cylinders..
because I always replace those components..

Randy’s VW Engine Shop Comfort TX
A "Genuine VW Shop" dedicated to Classic VW & Porsche air-cooled engines..

I am a factory trained VW mechanic from the early 70's, also a self-taught machinist.
Factory tools and equipment and Factory Training..
Ive been self-employed since 1977 and have only recently put my shop back together on my country property near Comfort, Tx. I can do most machine shop services, and all engine repairs on Air-Cooled Vw's.. Bring your own parts welcome.

I build very high quality VW engines> better than the VW factory engines that were sold new..
I use new Cylinder Heads, new Pistons and Cylinders, Genuine VW connecting rods rebuilt, new Camshafts and Lifters and more.. Lots of options on High-Performance engine components.
Complete engines get new Alternators, new Carburetors, Electronic Distributors,
Bosch Ignition parts and much more..
From 1600cc to 1776cc Type1/Bug Engines to 2056cc Type 4/Bus Engines.
I build every engine as though I was going to use it for myself, and I don't cut corners.
So if you're shopping for price alone- I may not be your first choice.
Because I charge at least $1500 for my labor and whatever machine work is needed..

I don't have the time or energy to accept every project that comes my way.
So the projects that I do take-on are those where the owner wants 1st class technical and mechanical repairs.. I strive to rebuild engines to a point of perfection using specific machine shop operations and procedures and precise assembly techniques- and of course quality replacement parts (all based on the customers budget).

I enjoy helping people with their projects, giving advise and making recommendations. My shop is a "hobby shop" so I make a little $$ from my labor and used parts, and I pass on all new parts on a cost basis. Also I enjoy educating people with time permitting. You can come for a visit and I will spend an hour showing you how all the pieces come together.

So for those of you who need service to your VW engine- just give me call anytime.
I am a very low-volume/one-man shop and I am over 69yrs old, so don't expect same day service. I also buy used engines. So if you have something for sale give me a call. I am located about 50 miles NW of San Antonio near Comfort TX.
Thanks for looking, Randall Brown..
